Oliva Early Learning Center Natural Playscape

Vancouver, Washington

BergerABAM provided the landscape design for the natural playscape for Phase I of the Oliva Early Learning Center at Clark College. Our landscape master plan includes nine unique playscapes designed to look and feel like the natural environment, capture the child’s natural sense of discovery, foster emotional and physical development, and encourage the value of caring for the earth. Set within the natural environment, these playscapes also promote the child’s mastery of challenge through play and appropriate risk-taking. The playscapes at Clark College make use of different aspects of the outdoor environment to facilitate different forms of play. BergerABAM was also responsible for preparing construction documents, including landscape and irrigation construction plans, details, technical specifications, cost estimates, and construction management. The Oliva Early Learning Center received the 2011 Community Pride Design Award.
